Hordes of eager consumers descended upon numerous retail chains at midnight last night to be one of the first owners of Nintendo’s highly anticipated 3DS console in the United States.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime greeted fans at Best Buy’s Union Square location to celebrate the March 27 launch of Nintendo 3DS. The first Nintendo 3DS sold in the U.S was to Isaiah Triforce Johnson of Brooklyn, NY, who scooped up the console seconds after midnight. Johnson was the same man who headed up Nintendo’s Wii launch day line back in 2006. After claiming the first US Nintendo 3DS he shouted “Now I’m playing with power … the power of 3D!”
